AOF receives second place prize in "RIAI Town Centre Living Competition"

Posted on 15th June 2023


We are delighted to share news that we have received second prize in the RIAI 'Town Centre Living Competition' for the Pirn Mill Road site in Sligo Town. Our proposal adopts an urban design approach, designing for streets and public spaces alongside homes. The scheme delivers a high-quality mix of apartments, duplexs and mews houses and places people above cars. The proposal provides an active street frontage with own door entry and creates a new internal pedestrian street with communal garden and shared spaces, providing a sense of ownership and community. A variety of outdoor spaces and terraces at different levels are designed to overlook the communal garden, to encourage a sense of security and provide opportunities for neighbours to meet and get to know each other. Careful placement of these ensures a mix of homes which maximise natural light without overlooking of neighbouring properties.

Many thanks to the RIAI and Sligo County Council for organizing the competition and to all the winning entries!
